Super Eagles demonstrated great resilience and talent -Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has hailed the Super Eagles in the aftermath of losing to the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire in the just concluded 2023 AFCON held in Abidjan.

The President said the team demonstrated the great resilience and talent of the Nigerian people.

This was contained in a goodwill message signed by the Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Ajuri Ngelale.

The message states:

President Bola Tinubu salutes the Super Eagles of Nigeria for their tenacious performance in the final of the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Côte d’Ivoire.

President Tinubu commends the team, the coach, the crew, and the entire management team for their hard work, assiduity, and sacrifice to come this far in the tournament, acknowledging the hurdles they consistently surpassed with steadily improving performance as they pulled through to the finals.

The President urges Nigerians to be of good cheer, emphasizing that we won a great victory in the hearts of Africa and the world by our grit, rigour, and determination in the field of play.

“Let this passing event not dispirit us, but bring us together to work harder. We are a great nation bound as one by the green-white-green banner of resilience, joy, hope, duty, and untiring love.

“To those cherished Nigerian youths expressing their gifts in communities, drawing lines in the sand as they play football in their humble rectangles of play, you can be our heroes tomorrow, do not relent in your pursuit. My administration is here to make dreams come true.”
